La valeur perçue du produit décrit l'évaluation globale d'un produit par les consommateurs. Elle prend en compte la mesure dans laquelle un produit répond aux besoins et aux attentes d'un consommateur. Elle prend en compte la mesure dans laquelle un produit répond aux besoins et aux attentes d'un consommateur. La perception de la valeur d'un produit peut être considérée comme un compromis entre la qualité et le prix. Toutefois, des définitions plus nuancées tiennent compte de la nature complexe de la valeur perçue des produits et font référence à ses dimensions : émotionnelle (sentiments générés), sociale (amélioration de l'image sociale de soi), qualité/performance (attentes en matière de qualité et de performance) et prix/valeur de l'argent (utilité et coût du produit).

inscrites dans les codes de conduite des banques, et comment font-ils face aux dilemmes éthiques ? Pour répondre à ces questions, nous avons mené une enquête en ligne non incitative auprès d'employés de gestion de patrimoine de l'entité juridique suisse d'une grande banque multinationale. Nous avons utilisé des questions de jugement situationnel pour estimer la compréhension et le niveau d'adhésion attendu aux principes du CdC. Nous montrons que le fait de formuler les questions sous l'étiquette "sécurité financière" augmente la précision des réponses et que l'honnêteté des employés aide à orienter leur décisions vers l'intégrité dans les dilemmes éthiques. Ainsi, outre la validation d'une méthode permettant de tester le niveau de compréhension de le Code.

Based on institutional theory and the dynamic capability view, this study delves into the relationship between a firm’s climate change adaptation (CCA) capability and its performance, with a focus on the mediating influence of business-to-business (B2B) marketing capability. The study poses two main research questions: RQ1: What role do institutional pressures play in fostering CCA capability among B2B firms in both developed and developing countries? RQ2: How does the CCA capability of B2B firms impact their performance? To validate the theoretical model developed, data is collected through surveys conducted in a developed country (Australia) and a developing country (South Africa). The study holds significance on two fronts: (a) being among the first to examine the influence of institutional pressures on CCA capability development, and (b) uncovering the mediating role of marketing capability in enhancing B2B firm performance through CCA capability. The study’s novel contribution lies in identifying pivotal elements for driving exceptional B2B firm performance amidst climate change, while employing institutional theory and the dynamic capability view to elucidate underlying mechanisms.

This cross-cultural study (individualistic vs. collectivistic culture) applies construal level theory, exploring the impact of cause familiarity on brand attitudes and how cause–brand fit mediates this link. The study also examines how perceived betrayal moderates the relationship between cause–brand fit and brand attitude. Data collection involved 455 participants from French and Turkish cultures via snowball sampling. Findings show cause familiarity significantly influences brand attitude, with attitude toward fit in a cause–brand alliance as a mediator. Perceived betrayal also moderates the cause–brand fit and brand attitude relationship, shedding light on the positive effects of aligning with a familiar cause on brand attitudes, emphasizing the crucial role of fit in such alliances.
I explore what happens when senior executives try to include non-expert, functional managers in the formulation and implementation of strategic actions marked by high levels of complexity and uncertainty. My findings will hopefully be relevant for anybody struggling to introduce new organizational practices in potentially hostile or sceptical corporate environments.
